In a seminar, Dr Dara Ghasimi
from the Department of Civil Engineering, explained the importance of sanitary
wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and presented several demonstrated concepts
of the state-of-the-art WWTPs.
Wastewater treatment plants
(WWTPs) are widely implemented to reduce harmful emissions to receiving water
bodies considering certain effluent requirements, without sufficient attention
on energy, said Dr Ghasim, adding that wastewater contains resources which
can be recovered for secondary uses if treated properly. “This situation was
changing in the recent years as both water and energy are critical elements,”
He then outlined the
importance of sanitary WWTP followed by presenting different demonstrated
concepts of the state-of-the-art WWTPs considering three essential pillars:
Resource factory, Energy factory and Water factory.
